Planning one amazing party is more complicated than it sounds.

Reece Ryan is known as the best wedding planner in town, but it’s time to take her company to the next level. Getting the contract from a prestigious law firm to plan their upcoming political related events is just the break she needs to prove that she can put together more than just the perfect nuptials. Sure, these events which will receive national coverage might be slightly out of her league, but it’s nothing she can’t handle. Managing the hotshot lawyer the firm has tasked as their liaison for the project is a whole other story.

Griffith Brighton always thought the start of his political career would come from hard work and his brilliant legal mind, not throwing some fancy party. But when the firm’s managing partner asks him to work with the event coordinator to organize a fundraiser dinner for the presidential candidate, he knows it’s the opportunity he’s been waiting for to get in front of some major political players. After years of goal setting and career planning, his future finally seems to be coming together …until two weeks of working with Reece make him reconsider everything he thought to be true about life and falling in love.

Aimee:  I've been looking forward to this book for awhile now.  This sounds like the perfect set up for a Hallmark romance, right?  I could picture each scene from this book just like a movie in my head.  It had great romantic build up and tension, witty banter and characters that I genuinely liked.  Well, Griffith wasn't love at first read, but he grew on me as I got to know him better and as Reece worked her sunshine magic on him.  Reese is someone I would love to be friends with in real life.  Positive energy just flows from her.  This was a fun book, engaging and full of undeniable attraction.  I love when the sparks fly!

Something new I'm doing with some reviews is including my daughter.  She is a reader too, a bit of a writer and I'm always curious about her thoughts when we read the same books.  I asked her to read and review this book with me and here are her thoughts (I promise we didn't even compare notes before writing our reviews!) :

Jaalah:  If you’re in the mood for an adorable Hallmark-vibe book, this is the one for you. Not only are the characters of Reece and Griffith relatable and likable, the way they interact and move the plot forward is completely engaging. The two characters’ interactions with one another made me giggle, and I found myself waiting with that knowing anticipation that only comes from the best rom-coms and chic flics for Reece and Griffith to fall in love. This book had just the right amount of feel-good-page-turning moments; it also had just the right amount of depth and feeling to enrapture a reader and make them really feel for the characters. 

Rachel Magee’s writing style was entertaining and bubbly- her attention to building lovable characters made the story flow perfectly. A clean, funny romance while snuggled in a fuzzy blanket is exactly what this girl needed after a long day at work, and let’s face it, sometimes a movie just doesn’t do it the same way an adorable novel like this does. I fell in love with all the exciting twists and turns in this delightful book; this is a love story I’ll be sure to recommend.

Content:  kissing (that gets a little heated, heads to the bedroom but cools off), still what I would consider clean.

About the Author

Rachel wrote her first novel when she was twelve and entered it into a contest for young author/illustrators. Unfortunately, the judges weren’t impressed with her stick figures. So she dropped the dream of becoming a world famous illustrator and stuck to spinning stories. When she’s not busy working on her latest book, she loves to travel with her family and friends. By far, her favorite destination is the beach, which tends to work its way into most of her stories. Between vacations, you can find her at home in The Woodlands, TX with her wonderful husband, their two adventurous kids and a couple of spirited pets, all of whom share Rachel’s love of the ocean. Well, except the cat and dog. They’re both afraid of water. Find out more about what Rachel has been up to at
